X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON APRIL 3, 2020 BY ZACK POHL USA Today: For governors, the coronavirus is a test, from its deadly toll to dealing with Trump For governors, too, the coronavirus has been a test. They find themselves rallying an anxious public, bidding against one another for scarce ventilators on the open market and sometimes scrapping with the president over what the federal government should and has delivered. More than any other elected official, governors have been making the on-the-ground decisions that will determine the lives and, in some cases, the deaths of Americans during this pandemic. They are responsible for deciding when stay-at-home orders are issued to slow the spread of COVID-19 and have scrambled to try to ensure adequate medical treatment is going to be available when it does spread.   Read the full article here.

TV Stations in Grand Rapids, Flint, Traverse City Pull Down False DeVos Attack Ads Against Whitmer - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON NOVEMBER 2, 2018 BY ZACK POHL TV Stations in Grand Rapids, Flint, Traverse City Pull Down False DeVos Attack Ads Against Whitmer SOUTHFIELD – Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign issued the following statement from Campaign Manager Eric Goldman commenting on news that three Sinclair TV stations in Grand Rapids, Flint, and Traverse City pulled down a false and misleading attack ad by the DeVos-backed group Priorities for Michigan. “As Bill Schuette struggles in the polls, it’s clear that the only ammunition they have left are desperate lies and smears. We applaud Sinclair TV stations for moving quickly to take down this libelous and misleading dark money smear. We call on the remaining stations that are running this ad to fulfill their legal obligation and follow Sinclair’s lead by pulling down this false attack ad immediately.” BACKGROUND: As MIRS News reported [DATE REMOVED]: Mystery Group With GOP Ties Goes On TV With Unsourced Claim On Whitmer The enigmatic pro-Republican entity “Priorities for Michigan” is back with a TV ad claiming Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen WHITMER wants to make Michigan a “sanctuary state,” an unreferenced claim that doesn’t match anything she’s reportedly said on the campaign trail. The announcer in the “Priorities for Michigan” commercials warns that “thousands of migrants are moving north, demanding to cross our border.” … “Whitmer wants to declare Michigan a sanctuary state. Whitmer would take a dangerous gamble especially now,” according to the ad. When MIRS caught up with Whitmer at a Michigan Education Association meet-and-greet, she said this when asked if she ever said she’d make Michigan a sanctuary state, “I’ve never made that statement . . . No. I’ve never said that.” … “Priorities for Michigan” has funded a pro-Republican women’s recruiting group called a “League of Our Own,” whose “scouts” include former House Speaker Jase BOLGER, Michigan Freedom Fund head Tony DAUNT and four female Republican House members, among others connected to Republican politics. # # # Share this post: Share Tweet Email Post navigation  Previous Post Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad Next Post   Detroit Free Press: Gretchen Whitmer officially sworn in as Michigan’s 49th governor Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.
